Hulu is well known for its on-demand library of shows and movies, but the streaming service also gives members the option to add live TV networks to their subscription. Hulu + Live TV plans start at $70 a month and include over 85 channels, as well as access to Disney Plus and ESPN+.

Instead of waiting until the next day to watch new episodes of "The Bachelor" or "What We do in the Shadows," Hulu + Live TV lets you stream shows as they air. This can make Hulu + Live TV a convenient alternative to cable and satellite packages that cost more.

Hulu + Live TV starts at $70 a month. This plan includes ad-supported access to Hulu's entire streaming catalog, over 85 live channels, and full access to ad-supported Disney Plus and ESPN+.

Hulu + Live TV offers more than 85 channels. The lineup features local networks in many markets, including ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC.

Hulu also has live sports, news, and entertainment via major networks like ESPN, FX, CNN, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Bravo, Paramount Network, History, Discovery, Food Network, and more.

Hulu + Live TV also includes support for streaming on two screens simultaneously. For an extra $10 a month, you can upgrade to Unlimited Screens, which allows you to watch Hulu on as many screens as you want, as long as the devices are connected to the Wi-Fi network you've designated your "home network."

With the Unlimited Screens upgrade, subscribers can also stream on up to three mobile devices on-the-go, or outside of the home Wi-Fi network.
